Hear ye, hear ye!
Lords and Ladies, I present to you the Loot Crate for the month of April, which has been generously given unto me to share with you.
The mag this month has articles on the influence of D&D in pop culture and a couple of recommendations on fantastic shows to watch. If you ever want to see what all is in these, you can hit magazine.lootcrate.com.
Here's a few random items! A Harry Potter luggage tag which is pretty cool. If I didn't already have my Nightmare Before Christmas tag, I'd probably use this. That odd flat thing in the upper right is an inflatable crown (I didn't have the ambition to blow it up for a pic). Also pictured is a geeky gamer bow tie with little dragons and d20s. Bow ties may be cool, but I cannot pull them off.
How could you do a Fantasy crate and not include Game of Thrones? Here we have a set of four house magnets and a Stark sigil 4GB USB drive. I'm a sucker for novelty flash drives. I took a close up of the drive so you can see the detail better. When it's closed all the way, you can't even tell that it opens.
Next up is a deck of Princess Bride playing cards from Albino Dragon. The same people that made the Ghostbusters deck I posted a while back.
The art on these is hit or miss for me.
Some of them look great up close, and others look best when they're on the table, not so close. But I will say they did a great job at selecting which moments/quotes to highlight.
Rounding out the Crate is this shirt which had me puzzled until I figured out it was Dungeons & Dragons. Sure, it's part of the D&D logo but on its own...I guess it's cool because dragons? But I imagine other people will think "Cool shirt, why is that dragon an ampersand?" or "That's probably from that Game of Thrones show."
Once again, they've done a little something with the Crate interior. If you turn it inside out, you get a table with a map, dagger and a few coins on it. I like the little goblin looking thing hiding under the back corner leg.
Overall, this one was a little better than middle of the road for me. No question, you're getting your coin's worth as far as value but there wasn't a lot to get me overly excited.
Remember last month, how there was an online scavenger hunt using items from the Crate?
This is what the prize was.
